All chiropractic techniques (veterinary and human) rely on the chiropractic “listing” to determine the presence of a subluxation.
Through manual palpation a misplaced bone prominence or a taught and tender muscle may be discovered by a competent veterinary chiropractor whose patient is cooperative and relaxed.
This is a listing, an anatomical subluxation sign, and almost always is indicative of a neuronal subluxation syndrome.
Unfortunately, only 40% of all neuronal subluxations produce palpable anatomical subluxation signs. This means over half of all the animal’s subluxations will be overlooked if anatomical listings are used as a means to discover them.
The good news is that all neuronal subluxations produce “pathological reads”, and all these reads are obvious and easy to discover and reduce.
The goal of an adjustment in an animal is all the vertebral subluxations in that animal are reduced. Subluxation reduction based on anatomical listings will get approximately half of the total neurological subluxations present in the animal.
Subluxation reduction based on pathological reads will get them all, and will verify they have been reduced. Fast, easy, effective.
